..."He asked the cashier, how many coffees do you sell in a day? The store manager Joanne Averion said. Then he asked the cashier to ring him up 500 large coffees.
"The cashier asked if he was going to drink all that coffee, or if he is going to give it to someone?" Averion recalled. "He said, 'You have to give these coffees to the next 500 customers," Averion also said.

Too much multitasking. Thanks for catching and correcting that so quickly!

Any chance of fixing this up? Thanks.
I’ve had 2 strangers buy me coffee at Starbucks in the past 6 months - one near my home & one in an airport in another state.
Not a feature your typical restaurant POS system is set up to accommodate directly.
Probably zero the price of coffee for the day. Or maybe manager-comp each coffee ... Or maybe, oh, forget it. Let the inventory system wonder about it.
Now this is news.
when that happens to me I buy a new T- shirt.
You must be hot. :)

Maybe not the best choice, but it didn’t seem to fit any other category any better.
Same here, twice in the past two weeks. This has never happened to me before. Pass it on, it’s a great way to start your day, as the giver or receiver.
A nice gesture, but if he wanted to be charitable, there are better ways he could have spent the $$.
Well, the coffee was. lol
I am always amazed at the wonderful people I can meet here in the US. I have done my part by trying to improve my conversation skills (not natural for me) so I can make small talk with strangers. The reward for me has been the many interesting encounters with people quite different than those I would normally meet.
Only kidding about being hot (well, half kidding). Being hot probably helps, but it is not at all necessary for interesting conversations.
Buying things for people who dont need the help makes for a nice feel good story but is hardly charity or being the ‘Good Samaritan’ as in the Bible/Torah.
asking for directions in canada ( this really happened )..
go up to the tim hortons, turn left.. go past the second tim hortons on the right, turn right at the street just past it..keep going until you get to the tim hortons on the left, and it is about 1 block further..
What are you wearing?
Any other tips?
Random acts of kindness... cool.
Most so called ‘charities’ are liberal enabling organizations... really - the coffee thing works - think about it.
I’ve given similar directions only it was McDonalds instead of Tim Hortons.
Always, someone poops on an act of kindness.
Understand. Plus the fact that many “non-profit” charities really exist to provide their officers with a nice lifestyle. You do have to do your research before giving.
Still, most people can afford a cup of coffee and its not like its a necessity.
Texas needs a Tim Hortons. When we go up North it is one of our first stops.
He struck gold with the doughnut shop he opened during his career. Unfortunately, he died in a car crash in his mid-40s.
here is a hint..
the coffee at the tim hortons in canada tastes different than the coffee here in the states..
i do not know why, but a tim horton coffee in canada is sooooo excellent..
bout the only thing i like about canada... :)
